ABC News obtained the police surveillence video recorded right after George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman through his attorney and his “black friend” Joe Oliver claims that he and Trayvon got into a fight on the night that Trayvon was killed.
The police leaked Zimmerman’s account of the shooting to the Orlando Sentinel which claimed that Trayvon approached George Zimmerman when he was walking back to his car and that Trayvon punched Zimmerman in the face, breaking his nose. Zimmerman also claims that Trayvon while on top of him during a scuffle bashed his head into the ground several times causing lacerations on the back of his head.
Well, that version of events appears to be complete bullshit.
In the new video released by ABC, Zimmerman is walking into the police station all casual like. He appears uninjured and there is no blood in sight which usually accompanies a broken nose. He also has a shaven head and as the camera catches the back of his head there appear to be no lacerations.
Also, interesting is the CNN Headline News interview with the funeral director who prepared Trayvon’s body for the service. Normally when people fight their hands get cut and bruised. The funeral director says Trayvon did not have any cuts or bruising on his hands or on the rest of his body for that matter, just a gunshot wound to the chest.
No matter how many “black friends” come out to claim Zimmerman is the best guy ever with no racial bias and no matter how many smears are spread about Trayvon to mold him into a stereotypical black male thug it’s clear that there was a botched investigation done by the Sanford police department in this case. None of this other nonsense being discussed in the press about marijuana Trayvon may have smoked one time at band camp, will change the fact that the evidence from the night Trayvon was shot does not appear to back up Zimmerman’s claim of self defense.
There are unanswered questions that need to be answered through a proper investigation. And that is all that matters here.
Arrest George Zimmerman.
